I LOVE Summer Dresses!

I just love sewing Summer dresses!
I hope that I am not boring you with yet another project, but I was so pleased with how this pattern turned out. 

I used Simplicity #2711. Just look at all of the darling outfits included:).

I made dress A.
I love it when someone can tell me how easy or difficult a pattern is to use.
So, here is my review:). 
The dress was easy and fairly quick to make. I thought the pleats were going to be a problem, but the instructions were well written. You actually sew it as a completely separate piece with the ruffles, and then attach it to the front.
That was probably the most time consuming part of the pattern. The rest was a breeze.

It is just a charming design and looks so sweet on sister:).

If you love to sew, like I do, this is a great dress to try:).


Lining to these lovely places.
